Sick again

Baby Spouse has the wheezing again. It's not as bad as before, so we put him to bed with some magic Calpol and a blast of his inhaler, and we feel OK about leaving him till the morning to see how he's doing. But I think our decision not to head straight to A&E was partly motivated by the fact that it was about 4.30pm when we noticed how poorly he was and if we had, it would have been way past his bedtime (and tired, cranky, sick babies are not happy) before we would have been seen.

I recently read this speech by Michael Gove who says some mad and pointless things, but this is worth reading, though a hard read.  Very hard.  But I felt sad today when I noticed that Baby Spouse did not scream as much when we gave him his inhaler today as previously. Either he feels very sick, or he has got used to basically feeling suffocated. Which is sad.

(but I do think that he may have tried to say "byebye" when we took it away... or possibly it was the eye of maternal faith).

(Incidentally, can anyone tell me why all my links from the Stirrup Queens ICLW page redirect to pages? They all get to the right place, but it's really bizarre).

Sorry about the wheezing, hope he gets better.

Poor little guy! Hope he feels better soon. "Byebye" would be very appropriate in that case, so don't be too quick to chalk it up to maternal faith!

Happy ICLW.
